Tame the Wild Ride in a 2017 Ford Explorer

Everyone loves the excitement of a foray into a bit of the unexpected. And we're willing to bet Ford felt the rush when it came to designing a dynamic road warrior likewise safe and reliable for the wildest of treks, the 2017 Explorer.

A hard worker under the hood, Explorer showcases a 3.5-L twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine capable of up to 365 horsepower and torque of up to 350 lb.-ft. That means it'll be easy to hitch up your trailer with up to a 5,000-lb. payload and hit the road. And who's going to ride those wild horses but a 6-speed automatic transmission, featuring steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters to make gear shifts a snap.

Likewise, Ford reined in Explorer with the safety features to make it a smooth, reliable ride. Curve Control slows Explorer down by up to 10 miles per hour once it detects excess speed on a bend over wet or dry surfaces, and intelligent four-wheel drive with a Terrain Management System comes in handy to help power through mud, sand, gravel snow with ease by shifting power dynamically between wheels.
